The 2014 Thunderbird Camporee focuses on classic camporee events and activities that emphasize teamwork, basic scout and camping skills, and the patrol method. Units should prepare for the Camporee by practicing Scouting fundamentals – knots and lashings, first aid, plant identification, proper camping techniques, and skills that a Scout learns on the Trail to First Class. There are a series of events planned to test your patrol as a team, a service project to remind us that as Scouts we should serve others with Good Turns, and a few historical museums will be open that should be fun and educational.

This year’s theme, Brownsea Island – Back to Basics, is centered on the first Boy Scout camp that was conducted by Lord Baden-Powell on Brownsea Island in 1907. We encourage all participants to adopt this theme and research what the first camp was and incorporate it into all of your activities this year at the spring Camporee. The competitions are a mixture of activities from the first camp as well as today’s camps and Camporee. Enjoy yourselves and have fun as we go "Back to Basics".

Camporee Shirts


This year, the Thunderbird District Camporee shirts are being sold by the Thunderbird Order of the Arrow Chapter as a fundraiser to help with Screenshot 2014-04-10 13.44.20the purchasing of new headdresses and ceremonies equipment for use with Cub Scout and Boy Scout ceremonies in our district. All of the regalia and equipment, including our chapter tipi, have been purchased through the hard work of individual youth and adult Arrowmen doing fundraisers over the past years. With this fundraiser, we hope to buy enough materials to make new headdresses that can be checked out to individual units to perform their own Order of the Arrow ceremonies for years to come. With your help, we can make this a reality. This year's Camporee shirt has a back design and a front design as pictured below.
